You might remember Alison & Jeremiah from a post we did a while back. As I sat here trying to think about how best to talk about the kind of love they share, I knew there was no better way of saying it than what I had already written about them before. About how they love fearlessly. Without bounds. Without reason. Only knowing what the heart wants. So I thought I’d just let that post speak for itself.
Married: Alison & Jeremiah
We stood awash in puddles of umbrellas. Two here. Three there. All huddled together for warmth. Clinging to each other as the rain came down.
And oh did it ever come down.
In buckets, in bath tubs…it poured down on us with purpose and determination, and washed the day clean. It rained so hard our eyelashes grew heavy as they lined with tiny rain drops and the world in front of us went blurry.
And still…the rain came down.
They tried to talk her out of it. Told her to consider a safer, more comfortable option. To think about the alternative. But she just hiked up her dress, looked down at her wellies and said, “I don’t know what you’re doing, but I’m getting married.”
To him. In that moment there was nothing more she wanted than to stand out in the pouring rain under that tree….their tree…and marry him.
Because it was where they felt closest to everything they love. Everything that really matters in life. See, they stood out there because it wasn’t safe or comfortable. But because it was remarkable. And it was theirs. Just him and her and their love.
And it made them feel alive.
Ali you are beautiful on the inside & out. I can’t tell you how glad I am to know you!
I LOVED the bouquets!
And who doesn’t love a girl in wellies? Pink pretty ones at that?
The GORGEOUS Bedford Oak is over 500 years old.

It was POURING at this moment & the rain on the lens gave us this crazy glow effect.
